    Warning, the drop off after that season is severe enough to make you reach for the memory bleach.

    I don't watch a lot of non-sports or non-news TV, but the two shows I watch are Person Of Interest and Scorpion.

    I only watched the first ep. of Scorpion, and all I could imagine was some network suits throwing out high concept pitches, and one guy blurting out, "I know, how about Big Bang Theory A-Team?"

    Should I give it another chance?

    I grumble about it while watching, though.

    my wife and me: Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda & Bates Motel
    My wife: The Young and the Restless. I try to stay out of the room when she watches that cause if I'm there I do impromptu satire of whatever scene is on. that leads to conflict.

    but Kenda and Bates only on YT when they have full shows of seasons we haven't seen.

    If you mean my current favorite rather than favorites of current shows, then I have to add reruns of The Honeymooners & Dobie Gillis

    Oh, god-my wife watches all of that 'reality' crap and then some. People arguing about tattoos, hairdos, food; men trying on dresses, dance moms. Kill me now.

    Dave - Lilyhammer was conceived in the US by Americans (incl Springsteen's pal) and then pitched to the Norwegians, so I figured what the hell....

    Van Zandt didn't even have to learn a new role. Silvio works.

    It's still a Norwegian show...I hear that Springsteen will make an appearance on Series 3, (which I've just started watching) Check out this snippet on YT, so f*cking funny!!

    I'm still wading my way through Breaking Bad. Will be finishing up Season Four tonight and I've got Season 5 on stand-by. I'll get to this one after I'm done...

    I don't watch any Network TV series at all. I also don't have Netflix or its kind either. I actually watch BluRay versions of series we get out of the library, which is why I'm a little behind.

    I'm looking forward to Season 4 of Game Of Thrones, that I will actually purchase...

    same.

    I also am looking forward to Backstrom with Rainn Wilson, but I don't expect it to get renewed given it's a midseason replacement.

    my gf and I watch Blacklist and The Goldbergs every week, although they are good, but not amazing. The Librarians I liked, although the thief kid is a little annoying.

    My son's been watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphi, and I sometimes watch with him. That show is crazy! Anyone know where those three guys came from?

    To these I would add

    Battle Creek (already cancelled, but my wife and I found it amusing)
    Constantine (already cancelled, but my wife and I found it amusing)
    iZombie
    Sleepy Hollow
    Supernatural (always liked this, just never seem to catch every episode)

    We only have "free" broadcast TV, in case you're wondering why your favorite pay TV show isn't included. We didn't see it.
